Most of the time African TV is usually CNN, BBC or the local propaganda station. None are worth watching.

I have a friend who is a 6'1 tall dark as soot big nosed woman. Not fat but strong bodied. She used to say how no one liked her. I told her if she would just stop scowling at everyone and keep her voice down she wouldnt scare everyone away. She sat infront of the mirror and practiced smiling. It was scary. but she finnaly got the hang of it and became quite popular. It was the attitude not the skin.

Nope. In Africa, TV presenters, models, hostesses, receptionists, are very often lighter-skinned than most of the people who see them. That applies to females much more so than males. The African countries from Senegal to Cameroun have a Sahelian North, and there is no trouble finding lighter women there with some Arab or Berber ancestry.


You have no doubt noticed that in US TV commercials and print ads, with very few exceptions, a black couple will be portrayed in which the male is darker than the female. In fact, you can travel for days, weeks, in Africa and never meet an American traveler of any color.

Please go and see Africa yourself. In all my years of traveling in Africa, I never met a black American there, and have only met one black American in this country who has ever been there.

You sound like a very depressed person, you need to change your life, don't threaten to move......just do it!
